Ueda still on board The Last Guardian

Monday, 5th December 2011 22:08 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Responding to rumours of his resignation from Sony, Team Ico leader Fumito Ueda has tweeted a reassurance that he’s still working on the studio’s long-delayed new release.

“There’s no need to worry, as The Last Guardian is still in production,” he said, according to Andriasang‘s translation.

Thanks, 1UP.

    I don’t think anybody doubts as to whether it’s still in production Ueda-san…people want to know if you’ve quit the studio…

    Although to be fair he probably isn’t allowed to say.

    Nobody was concerned whether he was working on the game or not.

    The issue was whether he was still with the company, or working freelance.

    That still doesn’t answer if he’s left Sony or not. I never doubted Sony would let a game like The Last Guardian gather as much interst as it has, and outright cancel it. Though it’s good to hear he’s still with Team Ico working on it.

    When was it ever claimed he wasn’t? If I recall, all that was rumoured was that he was leaving Team ICO and will work on TLG as a freelancer. The fact that he mentioned the freelancing capacity tacitly implies that the game is still in development, no?

    Pointless article is pointless.

    Even if he is leaving I think Sony will support his new projects, Sony gives him a ton amount of freedom and I honestly don’t think he will give that up and taking a chance with other consoles that won’t really appreciate his work like the Sony fans do! If it’s true its a very big mistake!

    @6, ya, cus 3 years is a long time between announce and release, and delaying a games release once is unheard of, right?

    I hope stays with sony because no other publisher will give him as much freedom , time and resources to make a game.

    how does vg247 come to the conclusion he is still working on it?
    He said the game is still in production. nothing more, nothing less. Doesnt mean he is producing it.

    The way he writes this in Japanese implies “I am/we are still eagerly working on The Last Guardian at the moment”.
